Hello Travelers!!! My name is Sayali. My lovely family and I went on our dream trip to Andaman and Nicobar Islands with Dekho Andaman. This blog is about my experience of Andaman Tour from Nagpur, including several tips and tricks for your upcoming trip.

A Backstory of our traveler, traveling from Nagpur to Andaman

In a busy world of today, we often loose connection with our near and dear ones. To build the life that we want, we take our relationship with the people we love, for granted. This was the case with me, I was so busy with my professional life that I couldn’t meet my family for the longest time in my life. We all lived in different states and barely each other once a year. 

That’s why I took matters into my own hand and booked a family tour package from Nagpur to Andaman and Nicobar Islands with this travel agency called, Dekho Andaman.

How did you get to know about Dekho Andaman ?

I get to know about Dekho Andaman at the Website called Quora, while I was searching for my options of travel agencies. There were so many positive reviews about Dekho Andaman on the website. Also, one of my friend strongly recommended them for our family Andaman Trip .

First of all, we were absolutely mesmerized by the scenic beauty of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The water was crystal clear and the sand was as white as clouds. The surreal natural beauty of Andaman had me amazed to this date. Another thing that surprised me the most was, amusingly, the size of the coconut there, they were amazingly humongous. I’ve never seen a coconut that size ever in my life

The best thing that we ate on our trip was lobster at a restaurant on Blue Island. We also ordered chicken and other dishes such as dal, and surprisingly, everything was beyond our expectations. Every dish that we ordered, tasted delicious. That restaurant is a must-visit according to me.

Suggestions For Travelers Travelling From Nagpur to Andaman

Plan a trip for at least a week

We only planned our trip for 5 days, which initially seemed enough to cover and properly experience Andaman. But honestly speaking, now 5 days seems comparatively less to explore such a beautiful place. I wish we could add a few more days to our trip.

Flight Tickets to Be Booked Prior

Book your flight tickets at least 2 months in advance. Since we planned in a very hurry way, we had to pay Rs3000 extra per air ticket for our journey to Port Blair from Nagpur

Always carry sunscreen

During travel, increased exposure to the sun may cause various severe skin problems like skin irritation, rashes, sunburn, etc. And nobody wants these interfering with the tour. Therefore, always remember to carry and regularly apply sunscreen, to avoid these problems and also to prevent getting tanned while you go on a trip.

Keep yourself hydrated

While on a tour, we tend to ignore the fact that we need to keep ourselves hydrated at all times. Ignoring the fact might lead to serious dehydration, which can severely negatively affect your health. Therefore, always remember to keep yourself hydrated.
